Pros

long time and detailed trainnings; a plenty of networking opportunites with management even executives. The leadership valued it and require each intern to present their accomplishments at the end.

Cons

much lower payment than average for a graduate. Too much lesure time in the final 3 weeks before the final presentation. The company cut the budget this year and does not sponsor H1B anymore.

Advice to Management

need to feedback more quickly to applicant.

    Pros

    Flexibility during the day--great for if you have doctor appts or obligations with your small children that you might need to attend to. Good relationships with some of your customers are nice. If you are lucky enough to have a great boss- that would be a positive thing. Benefits are decent.

    Cons

    Customers will call you 24/7 so be ready to be oncall all of the time. You work on sundays -- so you work 6 days a week, then god forbid your customer needs something on a Saturday--you are expected to attend to them. Getting a good boss (DSM) will make all the difference in you ability to be successful in this job. I started out with a great boss and loved my job and ended up with a shitty boss and now hate this job. Pay is horrible as we have all pretty much taken pay cuts as they have recently restructured out pay. They also recently instituted the tracking device SALESFORCE.com and even though the software is not designed for sales such as this, they are myopic on us using it. Most people i know working here are pretty miserable and looking for other jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Dump the Salesforce software and all the other costly software and just get back to old fashioned sales!

    Pros

    Great company, compensation, benefits, people, management and work environment. Hard work is a necessity. If you truly provide economic profit to the company you will be noticed and rewarded. All the negative reviews are from disgruntled union workers and sales associates who lack the skill set required for success.

    Cons

    Many (not all) lower level employees (i.e., Marketing Associates, Union employees) don't understand the value they provide to the organization, which depresses their confidence and drive. The most important employees don't understand Sysco's business models. New employees expect promotions and raises without providing value to the organization.

    Advice to Management

    Stop advising strategies to specific sectors without performing thorough market research in each area. Just because one product works well in one area doesn't mean it works everywhere. Put together advisement committees that are location specific. Stop implementing cookie cutter strategies.
